Low fuel warning
« on: January 02, 2014, 12:13:10 pm »
Only issue after 1,400 miles is the low fuel warning light comes on much to early when there is over two and a half gallons of gas in the tank.  Not bothersome during the day but at night, way too bright and distracting.  I'd just as soon pull the bulb and go by the gauge, it's seems fairly accurate!  Will ask the dealer to see what can be done.  Anyone else having this issue?

It is something that has already been discussed at length in a thread elsewhere I think you will find. Have a search around, you will find it. I think it was deliberately set early for all you Americans and the Ozzies who are riding around the wilds of the back end of beyond with no fuel service until the next state!

Hi wingjack,

Check your Owners Handbook and see what is says there.

On Page 24 of the UK manual it says :

The low fuel indicator will
illuminate when there are
approximately 4.5 litres of fuel
remaining in the tank.

There may be a different figure for different Markets,
but whatever your Handbook says, is what you "should" get -
If not refer back to the Dealer to have it adjusted  :028:

I have found mine just right. I fill up twice a week and when the light is on I know I need to fill before going home to going to work as my commute is 50 miles which is the remainder in the tank.

I've repeatedly asked my TTSE Wrench, (Noel), about this too. He says there is no way to re-adjust the low fuel warning or the TPM low air pressure warning on the CPU....BUMMER! Between that and the nagging TPM warnings of Low Rear Tyre Pressure....these are the only remaining nit-picks I have left....Although I did have Noel disconnect the TPM system from my CPU and I check tire pressures the old fashioned way....so, I'm batting 500 w/the last of the electronic NIGGLES!  -Dr Ron  :173:

My FJR sender unit was way out.
I took pot luck and adjusted the float arm, got it spot on first time.
I also cleaned out the crud in the tank at the same time.

Don't know anything about the TTSE sender unit ??
Hopefully it will all be fine, ie 4.5l until reserve.

I checked the TPMS yesterday against my calibrated gauge and both senders are within 1 psi or 2.
Fairly good, impressed.

Just ordered the service manual and diagnostic tool !

Just filled up, light was on for about 3-4 miles. 4.6 gal.. 2 bars still on the gauge. I dont have a problem with that.

I originally thought the light was coming on too early, but that was because I had not  been filling the tank right up.  A quick fill still leaves nearly 2 litres space left for slower filling.
